Colin, Google and then Wikipedia to the rescue **LINK**

Anyone remember BOURNVITA made by Cadbury **LINK**. They stopped making my favourite hot milk drink some years back. Tried many others but no good so just left with cocoa.

Going back to Pans People, I used to work with a lad, different shift, who was married to one, no idea which one. I am difficient in television knowledge. How many of them were there?

I once knew a member of Hot Chocolate. Later dancers I understand. Very nice.

Lubby Lou was out in the cold. It was Big Ted and Andy Pansy Pandy. After all, look at the way he dressed!

My late dad used to have this every morning but he never rowed in his life.

I used to like watching the PROPER Emmerdale Farm with my uncle and aunt when I went to spend the summer holidays with them in Matlock

This guy Colin (as appearing on P8088 'The Borough of Lambeth', a Mk II Spit of 118 Sqdn) ?

stap me.jpg

Biscuits sold loose from tins, unwrapped boiled sweets (they always stuck together and to the bag), going into the co-op and the smell of all the different things, watching the guy make sausages in the back while someone sliced the bacon that had been hanging on a hook.

Anybody else notice that back then there were no 'nut allergies' and precious few of any other ones?

I remember that issue of Practical Mechanics with the Luton Minor very well, I think it was 1957. I had it safe until relatively recently when it just disappeared. I think the same issue described how to make a lathe using bicycle wheel hubs for the head and tailstock.

Since the "Eagle" has already been mentioned, "Luck of the Legion" with Corporal Trenet and Private Bimberg.
I still have a lot of the excellent cutaway drawings hidden away somewhere, I hope they haven't gone the way of Practical Mechanics, which were usually masterpieces.

Because I can remember virtually everything that you chaps are writing about is perfect proof of my own sad state of decrepitation. Well done Daithi for resurrecting "Just Jake", my memory wasn't playing tricks after all!

The first over the counter chuck glider that I remember was the Lindo Comet. The nose-weight comprised a rubber disc glued on each side, usually one would drop off and get lost. It took me a while afterwards to work out why it looped the loop every time I chucked it.
